D600 Summary

Getting closer to the mainstream 35mm SLR, Nikon's D600 carries a lower price than any full-frame predecessor, and delivers the high image quality you'd expect from a Nikon full-frame camera. With an interface more like the D7000 than the D300, the D600 is tuned for the enthusiast photographer.

Pros

Great controls for amateur or pro; Good grip and heft; Impressive low-light performance; Very good dynamic range; Excellent battery life; Built-in lens correction.

Cons

Dust and oil spatter problem; Moire problem with certain subjects; Slower X-sync speed; Slow AF in Live view mode; Aliasing in videos.

Price and availability

The Nikon D600 shipped in the US market from September 18, priced at about US$2,100 body-only. A kit including AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR lens was priced at US$2,700, a premium of US$600 over the body-only price.
